Broken Doll: Journal Page

I always start thinking more about my Mom this time of year. Her birthday is coming up in April. She will have been gone seven years. Unbelievable. Grief can still grab me at the strangest times, even now. The photo at the top is one of my favorite of me, although it's cropped for this page. I'm sitting at a table with my Mom. I just like my expression in it.  ;)

I'm heading to Ohio for another visit with my very good friend today. This is a great time to get away. But I need to get packing. I should be on the road right now. Always the procrastinator, waiting until the last minute. Is that a Taurus thing?  ;)

Of course I'll have to make another stop at the Blick store while I'm there. I can't pass that up. I've already cleared the car trunk. What treasures will I find this time? I'll let you know when I get back!

Have a great, relaxing trip. By the way, I'll be 60 in April, and it's more than I can bare!

A great tribute to your mother. It makes me very sad. Sad because you miss your mom and sad because I don't miss mine...

Hey, Pam, I feel you on the grief. my father's passed away for 13 years but the pain sometimes juts out poignantly.

anyways, you must enjoy your Ohio trip. :)

Hey Jenny! Had a blast...Just got home today. Stretched the visit out for a few days longer. ;)

Settling in and getting ready to do some painting! Hope to have a piece ready in a few days.

So glad to hear from you and THANK YOU for saying you're looking forward to the next piece. That made my day! :)

Have lots of ideas. Just need to pick one and go with it!
